It’s an age-old question – do we stop moving as much because we get older, or get older because we stop moving around as much?
Most of us will have seen the despondent face on a relative or friend who has just been told by their doctor that their aches and pains are just a symptom of “getting old”.
It’s one of many things which makes getting older such an unattractive prospect.
But what if “grinning and bearing the ageing process” was not in fact the right advice and something practical could be done to reduce discomfort? This is turn could lead to increased activity and maintenance of fitness; recognized to be one of the best ways to maintain capabilities at any age.
